Have you ever wondered about what happens during a typical missing animal consultation with myself, a psychic medium and animal communicator (pet psychic) on the case?

Each week numerous cases involving missing animals are brought to me. Each one is unique, no two are exactly alike, but the process for working each case is similar.

First of all it is critical that I work with as little information up front as possible. Working with a blank slate initially is very important as first impressions often are important and can be colored by the volunteering of too much information by the client.

I only request the name and species of the missing party prior to beginning to reach out to them telepathically.

If your animal is outgoing, friendly, and responsive to you then this part is usually fairly easy depending on the circumstances surrounding their disappearance. If they are friendly towards strangers then this part can be very simple.

After putting out a verbal request for contact with the missing party, I will then wait for a connection to be established before asking where the missing party is and what has happened to them.

Frequently I will simply “see” your animal or I may “hear” what breed they are. Sometimes the details are crystal clear at the beginning of the connection,  other times it can be shaky to begin and then improving as the investigation moves forward.

I will then describe various details as they come in, looking for only a “yes” or “no” response from my client to confirm the details. On occasion other animals living or past will try and butt in to the attempt to connect with the missing party.

After a connection is confirmed by describing various details about the missing party such as physical appearance, age, personality, manner in which they went missing and more, it is then time to ask where they are and what happened to them.

Frequently I will describe the physical location the animal went missing from, before using a map to refine the search.

As I bring forward details concerning the missing pet I will often times stop and ask additional confirming questions such as type of food eaten at home relationships in the home sleeping arrangements,  past injuries and much more.

If your animal is unable to respond,  such as recently passed or choosing to leave of their own free will, there are other ways to obtain the information we are seeking. I may request the name of a past loved one who is human and in spirit.

Again the process of connecting is similar with details concerning physical appearance, age, manner of passing, career interests and more being used to confirm the connection.

After contact is firmly established, questions about what can be seen, smelled, heard, and felt will be asked to determine location of missing party. In addition questions about direction traveled or traveling, health and more can be asked.

On occasion a solid connection will be established only to find the animal clams up when asked specific questions about what happened and where they are or if they are living or passed.

It can sometimes be difficult to tell your loved ones that you did something they told you not to and now you have gotten yourself into big trouble.

In some cases an animal can be talked into coming in or meeting at a neutral location closer to where they are presently.

Sometimes you will be led to their physical remains or evidence that suggests that they are in spirit.

In a limited number of cases the animal has rehomed themselves and does not wish to return or they have been stolen and sold or used in dog fighting etc., some cases will be solved and others may lack any serious closure.

Hopefully you never have an animal come up missing or lost, but if you do, I am here to help.

In the photo above you see Charles Peden with Milo a dog that was recovered in a parking garage that Milo led Charles to during a telephone consultation, at one point during the call Milo said “hang up already and come get me” 20 minutes later he was recovered.

As a psychic medium and animal communicator who takes great pride in being accurate, ethical and honest, it gives me great pains to “bomb” on a missing animal case.

As I recently had a case that went very poorly I would like to discuss it here so as to educate both those who do what I do as well as for those who seek out services such as the ones that I offer.

I was was contacted regarding a missing cat named Othello, not his real name … but it will do for my story.

He had gone missing and when I attempted to make contact with him, he did not connect very strongly if at all with us.

However my client said “yes” to details that I brought forward, even though I was not 100% accurate regarding the details of his age, appearance and so forth, she did not speak up – her own words in a subsequent email to me.

While not actually going through a death, I “saw” a vehicle and it seemed that he was no longer with us, so I figured he had a run in with a car and was most likely no longer with us.

Then weeks later I hear back from the client, her cat has been located through the use of his microchip. He was some distance away, Most likely transported by vehicle and I suspect he was living with another family that he may have preferred to his original “owner” regardless, when given the opportunity to connect with us, he failed to do so with any accuracy, through through the false positives my client had given me I was not aware that we did not have a solid connection with him.

As it turns out he was in very good condition when returned and based upon the evidence on the ground it would seem that he was living it up at another person’s home while his family was desperately searching for him.

The big question I have is why did my client give me false positive replies to details I brought forward? That does not help “us” it only hurts our abilities.

The other question is why did the cat not care enough about his original family to speak up when given the opportunity to communicate his condition and location?

It seems to me that the cats needs were not being fully met and that he took matters into his own hands, er paws and that he found a family that he preferred, and that when taken in to the vet or shelter in order to check up on him, the microchip was discovered and his little adventure came to a close.

I am only as good as the information I receive and if your missing animal left on their own accord, they may not wish to return. If your animal was with someone other than you, was spooked and went missing, or went missing for any reason other than leaving on their own accord, I can be highly effective.

Even if your animal does not wish to return, I can sometimes get them to open up about their complaints so that their home life may be adjusted to better suit their needs, and then they may wish to return.

If you give me false positives in the hope of “making something happen” the only thing that will happen is you and I will be disappointed with the end result. Please be honest when working with those in my profession.

The end result of this case was that I squeezed the client in with less then 24 hours notice, I scheduled them prior to when I usually make it into the office and I provided at the very least one or two follow up consultations in an attempt to recover the body of their missing animal.

So … why did I bring forward inaccurate information concerning her cat? There are several possibilities.

The cat may have told me a line of bull so as to get his owner off his back – doubtful as the details concerning his connection with me turned out to be inaccurate – as my client had said “yes” when she should have said “no”.

I suspect that either past cats of hers or other cats in the area may have tried to ride the coattails of my investigation into his disappearance.

Another possibility is that other missing animals that I had on my schedule “bled through” and tried to connect with me given that the cat that we wanted to contact was not connecting with us.

Regardless I provided a full refund for my time even though I can assure you that other professions such as search dog handlers were compensated even though they too were not able to secure the missing animal.

We, (animal communicators) are simply another tool that may be utilized when an animal goes missing. We are not a “magic bullet” if your animal left on their own and does not wish to come in there is very little we can do.

We can of course offer to chat with the animal regarding why they are leaving and perhaps their home life can be improved so that they wish to return, I have been successful with this approach in the past – on occasion.

If your animal is motivated to return and is still in good health, I can locate them even if they are three states away in the middle of a 500 square mile cattle ranch with desert scrub brush and no roads.

Please understand that the work we do is highly emotionally charged and can be very draining, the last thing that I want to do is tell someone that their missing animal is deceased – I would much rather bring forward something else, but when lied to during a reading or given false positives in the hope of forcing something to happen you not only hurt yourself, but your animal and myself or anyone else who you call upon to assist you in recovering your missing animal.

Bottom line:

Missing animal investigations are challenging and very highly emotionally charged – I can see why some animal communicators do not take them on. I have thought about not getting involved with them, but I have way too many joyful reunions and successful recoveries to ever consider no longer offering my services for recovering missing animals.

Hello Charles, 

Carly returned just in time to celebrate my birthday with me last week. 🙂 

One of the key elements in the reading was geese being fattened up for slaughter. You directed me to Slaughterville Road, and a church with a white steeple on that road. I left flyers there and planted a poster at the nearest stop sign. I drove down a hwy in the area that I’d never driven before. I felt very lost and unsure if I was headed in a helpful direction. Its importance didn’t register with me at the time, but I passed a tire shop – a place that uses an air gun/impact wrench type tool that makes noise like what Carly described to you that she could hear. Though I felt I was far away from the right search point, I planted a poster at that intersection. Later I discovered that tire shop was in close proximity to where Carly was ultimately found, only I had approached it from the opposite direction. 

The next day I got a call from a woman, Teresa, who had sighted Carly. She saw one of my posters and called to say Carly had been at her house two nights prior. Her son wanted to keep her, but her husband said no, she belongs to someone, let her go back to her home. They never realized of course just how far from home she actually was. Well, the woman and her family live in Slaughterville! I knew we were on to something, so I rushed out there to put more posters in that vicinity. As I was hanging posters, Teresa drove past and introduced herself. She had more news – Carly had been at a neighbor’s house the night before, eating from an automatic feeder! Now we have a sighting only 14 hours earlier. 

Later that evening, Teresa called to say she had Carly in her car! She had driven further east of where Carly was last seen, and found her walking down the street. This was at least 1.5 miles from Teresa’s house. 

When I arrived at Teresa’s house to get Carly, I noticed the house had dark, muted green shutters – the dark green trim you saw in the reading. Also notable is that they are building an addition on the house – another possible source of the air gun sound – a nail gun? 

Your intuitive input along with old fashioned footwork and good-hearted people combined to bring my girl home! 

Thank you so much for your invaluable help.

While I don’t really enjoy working lost animal cases, (working one means that someone is missing a loved one) I do find great joy in assisting in the successful recovery of a missing animal.

Working missing animal cases can be very draining, after all every client is dealing with the nightmare of a loved one being gone and are desperate for answers and closure.

Unfortunately not all cases end up with a happy reunion, however many do, they are the ones that keep me going in this tough line of work, and I would like to share one such recent story with you, here is my clients testimonial, my comments are below.

I contacted Charles on Sunday, September 18, 2011, after our cat Silky had been missing more than 35 days.  We weren’t sure if she was still alive, and had all but given up hope of seeing her again.  Charles’ first impressions were that our cat was still alive, and he saw box-type trucks nearby.
I asked Charles if he could connect with my other beloved cat, Pollyanna, whom had died on August 13, 2011 and ask her about Silky.  Charles instantly picked up Pollyanna’s energy.  Pollyanna informed him that Silky was alive and seemed to be moving to and fro in a confined area.  I told Charles that a canal runs behind my house and it continues right behind a U-Haul truck business.  Charles felt Silky was near that business.  Indeed she was!  Trapped in the canal, unable to escape over the 20 foot tall cement walls on both sides.  We placed a trap in the canal, and after 38 days and a strong will to live, we got our Silky back.  Thanks to Charles’ God-given abilities to connect to all animals living or passed on, we now have our Silky back home. 
Our family highly recommends Charles for any needs you may have regarding animals.  He is a kind and compassionate gentleman.
Mr. and Mrs Peck, Concord, Ca
 This particular case was difficult to some extent for me as I was concerned about giving false hope where there was none, however no matter how I asked the question regarding the cat still being alive I always got the same reply, a big “Yes!”
Trusting my instincts, the information coming in and the fact that I have brought many other animals home safely I “stuck to my guns” and was successful in relay accurate information as to the animals whereabouts and condition.

When one is dealing with a missing animal it is important that we do not assume what has happened until proof has been brought forward. In cases where the animal has passed, frequently the animal’s body is no longer available to be recovered – as in eaten by coyotes or other animals. In some cases the animal’s body is unrecoverable without valiant efforts such as recovering a body that has been swept out to sea or that has gotten lost in the wilderness with very little in the way of landmarks and roads to guide a recovery.

Another type of case where a physical body recovery is not possible is where the animal chooses to shield us from the difficulty of their passing. If a passing was tragic, such as being hit by a vehicle, your animal may not wish to allow you to view their body in such a state. By preventing you from seeing this, they are protecting you, and themselves from having to be further reminded of the incident that was responsible for their passing.

If I am unable to reunite you with your animal, or if I am unable to lead you to their remains, I can still provide closure.

Recently I was chatting with a dog who had passed some time ago. The person never really had closure, the animal “disappeared” while he was still living at home with his parents. His folks had put his dog down and did not have the decency to tell him the truth of what had taken place. When the dog came through there was a wealth of personal details regarding favorite memories, past injuries, specific life events and even the location where he had lived with this dog was brought forward. While not a “missing” animal case this was still closure being brought forward, many years after the events had transpired.

The first 48 hours after an animal goes missing are critical. Many times people resort to an animal communicator (pet psychic) as a last resort, while I believe that it is one of the first people you should call, knowing the right area to search makes all the difference.  Being able to communicate with a scared animal companion may mean the difference between life or death for them. Had I not made contact with the cat in the testimonial above, and had a large volume of water ran through the canal, I can assure you that cat would not be at home right now, instead they would most likely have drowned and never been recovered.

Granted some animals do not wish to come home, when they took off it was not because they were scared, but rather unhappy with home life and seeking to find a new family or try and make it on their own. Some missing animals join packs or feral colonies and sometimes animals just are finding their wild side. There was a book written along those lines by Jack London, “The Call of The Wild.” When an animal chooses to leave, or while out on their own, decides to try and make it by themselves, there is not much I can do.

If you are a concerned individual, but not the primary party tied to a high profile case, please understand the following; I only work missing animal and missing persons investigations when working directly with the immediate family involved or the lead law enforcement agency involved. You may alert the parties involved as to my services, you may pay for my services, however I will not work any case that I am not in direct contact with the principal parties involved.

I do not provide my services unsolicited, nor do I have a “take” or an “opinion” with regards to any public, high profile cases … yes, I do get called in to work some of them, however not everyone is comfortable with publicly acknowledging the use of a person with my abilities and there is a certain level of discretion and that is expected when involved in such work.

August 8, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A dog named Milo that disappeared while his owner rushed to help a woman is back by her side, thanks to a dog communicator.

Screen Capture ABC News 7 Chicago

August 8, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — A dog named Milo that disappeared while his owner rushed to help a woman is back by her side, thanks to a dog communicator.

Kristin Yoshida and Milo were out for a walk when a woman tried to jump from the CTA stop at Kinzie and Wells. Yoshida pulled the woman to safety, but dropped Milo’s leash. She said she called a “dog communicator” who suggested Milo might be in a parking garage. Yoshida’s father found the dog in the parking garage of Yoshida’s building.

“We were on the phone for less than an hour and he led me right to my dog. And he kept saying something about the number five. I always park down here and today my car is on the fifth floor because there was no parking when I came home,” Yoshida said.

Milo was thirsty and hungry when she found him, but seems to be fine.

Unfortunately the story above lacks several details, as I am the “dog communicator” Animal Communicator, (Pet Psychic) who led Kristin to Milo, let me share my side of the story.
 
August 8th, 2011 was already a busy day with a house call earlier in the day to look into a possible ghost issue at a nearby residence. After identifying the ghost and encouraging him to move on, I returned home just in time to spend some quality time with my family.
 
While sitting down and enjoying a family movie, my phone rang and I knew that it was an emergency. As I left the living room I told my family that I had to take the call and went downstairs to my office.
 
A woman had been walking her dog 48 hours ago and had prevented someone from committing suicide, and while doing so dropped her dogs leash, the dog then ran off. Only knowing that this had taken place around the Chicago area and that the dog’s name was Milo, I proceeded to telepathically connect with Milo and assisted in leading Kristin to him.
 
Prior to describing Milo to Kristin, I saw a small Yorkie like dog, (as it turns out – that dog was missing too and also was in the Chicago area.)
 
When I connected with Milo he told me that he was a medium to large dog, with a lot of black on his face. He told me that he was a working breed.
 
Kristin confirmed the details and then I asked if the bridge was over a narrow yet deep body of water, she said no … I then saw the water turn green and knew that I was dealing with an incident that took place in the downtown part of Chicago. I pulled up a map and while doing so I told Kristin that the bridge was not over water, and that she had been just north of downtown Chicago, which she then confirmed.
 
While looking at the map (via Google) of the city, I saw an intersection that caught my attention. I asked her about the area near the intersection of Kinzie and Wells. Kristin was surprised that I asked her about that location and then confirmed that was where she had lost Milo.
 
I then “saw” a number five and asked if Milo was five and Kristin said “No.” I then told her that number was important and to set it to the side until I made more sense of it.
 
I then “saw” the river again and saw a big bend in it. Then I “saw” a parking garage.
 
I felt as though Milo was trapped, unharmed, thirsty, hungry and dry.
 
Again I “saw” a parking garage, Kristin told me that she thought he had gone into one and began asking questions about it.
 
As it turned out, I ended up describing two parking garages, one with a single level (the one she thought he was in) and I “saw” another garage that Kristin recognized as being hers at home. The garage at her home was multi-level. I “saw” Milo on the fifth floor. He was under a white vehicle that was a cross between an SUV and a sedan, the vehicle had a green logo or lettering on it.
 
I also “saw” the public art sculpture that Milo frequently uses as his place to take care of “business.”
 
At one point I told Kristin to stop wasting time and go out and bring Milo home as he was thirsty and trapped by his leash under the vehicle.
 
Kristin asked me if Milo would come to her father or if she would be the one to find him, I told her that her father would connect with him.
 
After the call I had an errand to run and headed down the mountain and into town. On the way down the hill my cell phone rang, it was Kristin, they had just found Milo.
 
Milo was found on the 5th floor of Kristin’s parking garage. The images I was shown of the one story garage have to do with him going there first. He then showed me several locations he is familiar with while walking around downtown Chicago. The last pieces of information he showed me had to do with him being in his person’s parking garage. Milo was located under a white minivan that was an Enterprise rental vehicle, it had the word Enterprise in green on the vehicle.
 
Later that evening all of the major Chicago based television stations ran a story about how Milo was found with the aid of a “dog communicator” or animal communicator as I like to be referred to.
 
Not all tales have a happy ending, lost animal cases, next to missing person cases, are some of the most difficult types of readings to do. Sometimes great joy can be found in a tearful reunion, other times tragic events have unfolded and the animal may have been killed or as in one recent case, they simply do not wish to return home for one reason or another.
 
Among the world of animal communicators, there are only a handful that work missing animal cases, and even fewer who work without a photo and or description of the animal who has gone missing. I only require the animal’s name in order to establish a connection. Once I have brought forward details that confirm a connection, such as age, breed, physical appearance, events that led up to the animal going missing etc., then I can work with the animal to find out where they are and if it is possible for them to come home on their own, or if I should direct the pet owner to recover them themselves.

As one develops their abilities as a psychic medium, inevitability they will at some point be asked for their take on a missing persons case. Several times we (as psychic mediums) get involved in cases where family members of the missing have been guided to us in some fashion so that they may utilize another tool in their quest for answers as they search for their missing loved one/s.  What follows will be an account of a case that I became involved in, where I have changed the names of those involved, however the rest of the details are fairly accurate.

A few years ago I was contacted by a friend who had a friend of theirs who had a family member go missing. The missing was a young woman and was reported to have last been seen in the company of a known sexual predator.

While out clubbing in New York, she hooked up with this young man and took a drive with him, after which she was never seen again. After having been missing for a few weeks, I became involved through connecting with one of her relatives and filling him in on the information that I had coming through, which he then relayed to the authorities. I also spoke directly with the authorities and urged them to check out a few leads, which they then followed up on, to no avail. This was a very difficult case, and I think that perhaps I may have overlooked some of the clues, over analyzed a few and missed a couple.

One of the very first clues that I had was a large round form like a manhole cover or similar. At the time i was using Google to view photos from the air and was attempting to line up images that I “saw” and then connecting them with landmarks. I was asking for landmarks that could be viewed from the air and I shown a large round object. At one point I thought it might be the view from the bottom of a well, looking up, but that did not fit. Roof seemed to be a clue that came forward when I was thinking about the large round object, but nothing fit … except Penn Station. When I viewed the maps, one of the first things I felt was “full circle” but when I went full circle from her last known location in NYC to where she was last sighted, about an hour and a half away and then back to Manhattan, I was lost. I saw Penn Station and while drawn too it, I could not figure out why.

During my investigation another clue came in that was very strong, covered bridges. I began to think that perhaps she had been dumped off of a covered bridge, but that did not make sense, as I could not feel that. I went so far as to view pictures of just about every covered bridge in NY in an attempt to figure out why I was drawn to them. Another clue that came in very strongly was canals. But it felt as though it had more to do with historical canals rather than present day canals. One of the clues that probably drove me nuts more than any other was “Happy Days” the TV show and diner. I was impressed to find that their was a Happy Days Diner on the highway that I was sure she would be found near. But, when I sent the authorities in that direction, nothing came of it.

I also had the crossing of the Delaware coming in as a clue and that that this was a reference to the Revolutionary War and every time that I went in that direction I felt that I was close to something, but just missing it. The most dramatic clue I had come through was when my television set turned it’s self on and then it flipped through channels landing on channel “6”. When I said six, I was told that I was hitting on a detail that was correct.

I kept seeing large equipment like construction equipment and thought that perhaps a gravel quarry or construction site of some type where they were excavating was nearby. She was found not too far from a large open pit mine. Being out in the country and near a reservoir along with dragonfly’s and a marsh were shown to me repeatedly and I was never able to figure out the dragonfly clue. Tattoo came through as well and I thought that it was a dragonfly tattoo or tattoo parlor that we may have been looking for.

One clue that I shared with the authorities and which felt very solid to me was ATV or dirt bikes. I saw a trail for off-road riding and that she was near it. In an email that I shared with some friends, I shared the following:

“Here are the clues in order of their apperance and how they came to me. Thank you for any help you can provide. I should add that it is possible that some of these clues are related to other missing persons in the area, while my focus is on “name omitted”, other spirits of missing individuals may try and ride the “coat tails”of this investigation so that they too may be located. While working a missing persons case in Oregon nearly two years ago, I provided clues and the actual whereabouts of five missing persons while I was only looking for two.

My first contact with the case came prior to my hearing about her. A friend of my wife works with one of (the victims) cousins and he then called me. He is in the military and is stationed at Fort Lewis in the Seattle/Tacoma area of Washington state. When he contacted me I asked for her name only and no additional details. The first thing I told him was that she had gone missing in the company of a man whom the police had already identified and whom they considered a person of interest. He confirmed that was the case and then I asked if he would be able to provide confirmation of details about her as they came through, he said that he was not real close to her and gave me the number of another family member who was closer to her.

Later that day I connected with another one of her cousins who is a truck driver and whom lives in Chicago. He had just returned from New York and had been involved in some of the early searches for her. He also knew her father whom had died a year prior. The Family is from (omitted). Her father did not speak English and there was no mention of him in the papers. The cousin from Chicago asked me to connect with her father. I secured a connection with him and began bringing through details about him. I described his clothing, his physical appearance, how he died and what he did for a living. Once nearly convinced that I was speaking to him, the cousin asked me another question to ask her father, the question was related to a trip that he had made with her father and that’s when the answers stopped making sense. I had a feeling that the father felt that he had already proved that it was him coming through and now he wanted to stop beating around the bush and start bringing forward details regarding her whereabouts.

Sadly there was a touch of a language barrier with the cousin I was speaking with and the phone reception was spotty. He asked what it was that he and her father had done together on his last trip to visit them. I was then shown a motorcycle, similar to a dirtbike, like motocross. He said no, they did not ride bikes, I asked if she had a motorcycle, he said no. No one coulod figure out why I was seeing a motorbike. Then I saw fishing … I described them fishing and he said yes, they had gone out on a boat and gone deep sea fishing or something like that in the Gulf. The problem was that I saw a different type of fishing, what looked like a river and people in waders fly fishing, he said that did not ring a bell.

Then I saw a dragonfly, I described it and he said that meant nothing to him, I then asked about a butterfly, perhaps a tattoo on her shoulder or ankle, I then saw that it was a dragonfly and not a butterfly and asked if he was positive that she did not have a dragonfly tattoo, he said that she had no tattoos.It simply did not make sense since I saw it so strongly.  Nothing new came through during the rest of the reading and so I called it quits for the time being.

That evening I had my TV turn it’s self on after we had finished watching a show and had turned it off. After turning it off and walking out of the room, I heard it turn back on. The remotes were in such a position that they would not have been able to work and the TV turned on and then went off of cable and the channel changed to a white noise/snow channel which happened to be number 6. I walked up to the TV and turned it off, I felt a very strong presence and as quickly as I turned it off, the TV turned it’s self right back on and back to channel 6. I then realized that someone wanted to send me a message and so I sat down to speak with the spirit. After about five minutes it dawned on me that I already had the message, the number 6. At this point I had not yet looked at any maps of the area and was not familiar with the region.

The next day I pulled up some maps of the area and to my surprise I found that route 6 runs right through the area that she went missing, not only that, but there was a tattoo shop right on route 6 and not too far away from where there was a place that looked as though motorbikes may be jumped etc., like an old field that had been used as a track. I called the police and the cousin and relayed the info to them. They later told me that they checked out the leads and that nothing had come of it.

At this point I began to spend about an hour or three a day in looking at maps of the area trying to piece together the clues and make sense of what happened to her. In what I believe was one of my conversations with her, she seemed to be very ashamed and did not seem to want to be found. Her family kept telling the press what a good girl she was and how the only way she would have left the club that night with a stranger, was if she had been drugged. I got the sense that if they found her body and ran a tox screen on it that they would not find drugs in her system and so that would hurt her family. I have felt that she has not wanted to cooperate very much in finding her body due to the condition it was left in and due to her family’s convictions that she was a “good” girl and would never do such things.

Around this same time, I had a visit from Harvey Milk and when he dropped by, he used music and the music videos that go along with the songs to communicate a message to me. I then asked for a similar clue to her whereabouts. I started picking up on Wheezers song about Happy Days. And earlier that same day I had a reading where I had something odd come through durning a reading after I briefly mentioned the case that I was working on. I saw a Chevy Camero that was tricked out hot rod style. The passenger window had a tray or something attached to it that was sticking outside of the car. I kept thinking that it was a camera mount for film passengers in a moving vehicle, but that did not fit. I finally dismissed it and finished the reading, later that day the song about the Happy Days diner came into my head and I looked it up on Youtube, I was not familiar with Happy Days or the song and while watching the video I was hit with wave upon wave of energy and found myself weeping very heavily. I thought that it was perhaps something in the video and I wrote down every word in background, I also checked the lyrics and though they seemed somewhat appropriate, they were not a clue. Then it dawned on me that the clue was the diner it’s self.

I found out that the diner was fictional and set in another state no where near New York. I then on a hunch googled the diner along with New York, turns out that there is a Happy Days diner in New York, on route 6! I pulled up their web site and found pictures of cars, hot rods and one of them was a Chevy Camero that looke just like the one I saw during the reading earlier in the day and of course they had food trays that rested on the window of the car.

The next video clue was Like a Virgin by Madonna. I could not make sense of the lyrics, they made no sense, but the video is filmed in the canals of Venice. Covered bridges also came through as being somewhat significant, or at least the view from inside of one of them, I thought that it was the crisscross wooden framework that seemed to be a visual clue, more so then the bridge it’s self. I also began to pick up on full circle or at least a circle shape. I thought that perhaps it was possible that she was in an old culvert, perhaps a storm drain or something. The image of looking up from the bottom of a storm drain and seeing a small circle of light gave me the chills and I kept feeling like there was a drop, like she was dropped into such a structure. Perhaps an old mine shaft, or something of that nature.

The dragonfly seems to me to be one of the best clues along with the motorbike, a watershed of some sort, and full circle. The canal clue along with 6 and the diner are very strong clues. I have often felt that there is a connection to a historical location that is tied to the Revolutionary War, and plankroad seems to get my attention as does a crossing of some kind.

I think that she may be found in near or in an old canal that may be dry at the moment. I think that she may wash out with the spring thaw and April showers. She is in a historical location and perhaps near a construction site.

Once I locate my notes I will go over them and add in any additional details that I may have brought forward while looking into her case.

More later …. off to work for now.

-Charles”

In a batch of notes that I kept regarding my investigation I found a piece of paper with the following written on it:

Dragonfly, Tattoo, Butterfly, Ankle, Dirtbike, Motorcycle, motocross, trail, track, circle, middle, the number 6, bridges (covered), near water, lake, pond, buried, in soil, outside, forest, Kings, Historical, connection to revolutionary war, Middletown, military in close proximity, NJ subway entrance, mines, powerlines, ballfields, medical center.

I have additional notes somewhere regarding this case and when they are located … I am sure that more will come together. For now though let’s take a look at the hits.

Hits: (Can be supported through an email and additional notes made prior to her body being located.)

I saw her body in a shallow grave at best, in a field where a reservoir and or lake and marsh was nearby.

I saw ATV trails, places for off road riding, she was found by ATV riders in an open field.

I saw a large open pit/mine/construction and large equipment, found near where her body was located.

The covered bridges … Pennsylvania has more than any other State in the nation and also had the nations first covered bridge,  she was found in Pennsylvania.

Time line … I saw her body being found in April, she was found in April.

Happy Days came through as a strong clue for awhile … the musical version of Happy Days toured through PA while I was investigating and there is a Happy Days diner off of Highway 6 in New York.

The number 6 came through many times and I was told it was the highway that she was off of, sure enough … her body was found right off of highway 6.

Historical references to canals came through several times while I was investigating the case, the town near where she was found is named for the former president of the Delaware Hudson Canal Company.

Several times I saw George Washington crossing the Delaware as a clue and mistook it for simply being a clue to the war, in fact she was transported across the Delaware river prior to having her body dumped.

Olyphant used to be known as the Queen city when King Charles had to settle a land dispute there … Kings kept coming through as a reference.

Full circle was a difficult to understand clue, it seemed to me to represent the possibility that her body was taken back to where she had been picked up from. When I got back to that area on the maps, (Manhattan) what jumped out at me was Penn Station, since from the air it looked like a huge circle or man hole cover (which) I thought I might be seeing. I also looked at cooling towers and waste treatment facilities since they had a similar appearance. looking back on it, Penn Station was the clue as she was trying to let me know that she was in Pennsylvania.

I had several misses, but when I look at the hits and the near hits … I can see that some of the information I should have taken literally. When shown a man crossing the Delaware, perhaps I should cross the Delaware too in my search for the individual instead of getting caught up in what the crossing of the Delaware represented in the battle for our nations independence.

Looking back on my work with the case, I wish that I had it to do over as I now see where I let the investigation get away from me. Now with a bit more experience and knowledge, I look forward to the next time I am asked to assist in an investigation of this nature.

Missing Animal Cases

a.) Not all animals will want to be located, no offense … but your animal may have been ticked off by something and you may not even be fully aware of it.

If for some reason your animal is angry or upset with you or a situation in your home, they may be willing to return if you are able “talk it out” and come to an understanding where both of your needs are met.

For example: A dog was adopted out and soon after being adopted, the new “owners” called the shelter to report the dog had gone missing. I connected with the dog after one of the shelter’s personnel contacted me about the situation. The dog informed me that the home that he had been adopted out to was overcrowded with other animals and that he wanted nothing to do with it. The dog proceeded to inform me of the general details of the area that he was hiding in and gave a good reason for not trusting the shelter people … if they adopted me out to this place, why should I take my chances and go back there? Freedom can to some dogs be a bit too much of a calling and when running away from “bad” situations, they may end up going feral if food, water and shelter can be found on their own, or they may end up moving on and finding another family to adopt them, one that they have vetted on their own.

b.) Some animals will wish to shield you from any knowledge of a difficult passing. Though some animals seem to be okay with leading their humans to their physical remains … not all are comfortable with it and depending on their manner of passing, they may wish to protect you from it.

Animals do not fear death, they fear pain … both physical and emotional. If you consider the fact that “your” animals are connected to you telepathically and that the way that you talk about them, feel about them and think about them directly affects them, they will try and avoid additional pain and suffering for both parties.

For example: A woman had lost her cat and after going missing she contacted me. I connected with her cat and described a neighborhood where the homes were spaced six hundred feet apart with manicured lawns between them. She replied that was not anything like her neighborhood where the homes were fifty feet apart. I provided further details and after a bit it all came together. I had described a location directly across the lake from her, where she found her cat washed up on the shoreline. As the body was not damaged, the cat felt perfectly fine with leading her to his body. In many cases where the body is badly injured and visibly damaged, the animal will not lead you to the body so that you do not have to endure imagining the pain and suffering that they went through in their final moments. As they are connected to you, they feel the way you think of them and so they are also protecting themselves from having to be reminded of their difficult passing.

c.) Foul play does occur on occasion and an animal that went missing, may have been stolen for one reason or another. These cases are difficult because often times the thieves leave the area and it is possible that your animal may go through several hands before being sold or disposed of in some way.

For example: Dog fighting involves not just fighting dogs, but “bait” dogs as well. In some situations smaller animals that are not purebred or young enough to be resold as pets may end up being used as bait to make the fighting dogs more aggressive. I personally know the location where some of these dogs bodies are dumped after being mangled by the fighting dogs.

In one missing animal case I dealt with a Chihuahua who had been stolen from right in front of their person’s home. The dog told me that he was north, and by the market … and that he was in a cage or trapped in some fashion. I went north of the home on foot and found nothing, then I saw the market … it was south and east of the home … not north. A few days later the dog was returned. The story was that the dog had ended up in a flea market in a town just north of us and was on display in a carrier at the market. The man claimed to have purchased the dog for $500 for his daughter at the market, saw a story in the paper about the missing dog, realized what had happened and simply wanted to be reimbursed for the purchase price and declined the larger reward that had been offered.

When an animal is captured, often times they are fearful, and in unfamiliar surroundings. They may try describing individuals holding them, which if you do not know them … may mean nothing to you. Also if taken out of the area, the clues may be confusing if we are trying to match them up to the immediate area. If changing hands, the descriptions will change as to their surroundings, the persons holding them and what types of vehicles may be involved … very difficult to pinpoint. Add to the mix that these clues will be next to impossible to confirm and therefore very difficult to follow up on.

d.) Sometimes an animal simply needs to get out and stretch their legs and when done, they will come back … not when you call them, but on their terms, when they want to. Sometimes they are stuck … in need of help and given an opportunity to voice where they are and how to rescue them, they will shout it out to me. Sometimes a kind hearted individual takes them in and cannot track you down right away or doesn’t see one of your missing flyers. On occasion the missing will turn up at local shelters or even one a bit further away than you thought your animal would travel.

Provided the animal wishes to be located, it is important to bear in mind that it is possible that the clues coming in are from your animals perspective. In a case that I was working in southern California, a cat was trying to confirm my connection to him by describing his “owners” backyard and the features within in. He kept showing me a tree that to me looked like a willow tree. The cats person insisted that there were no willow trees in the area, I tried to dismiss the image, but it would not go away. I then was shown fruit on the tree and told that it was much smaller than a willow tree. I then asked about a kiwi tree, and was told that she had three of them in her yard, I then described cacti and they too were confirmed.

The bottom line is that I can help nearly everyone obtain some degree of closure when it comes to cases involving missing animals. I simply cannot guarantee that you will be led to their body or that a joyful reunion will take place. The following are some suggestions for effectively locating your missing animal.

1.) Remain calm … as difficult as this sounds it will help you think clearer, it will be more calming to your missing animal and will make it easier on those assisting you with the search. I have actually had animals tell me that their “owners” tearful and ear piercing calls were frightening him and not the soothing shelter and home that he wanted. He had been injured and was afraid that his condition would cause their person to break down and completely lose it, as they clearly could not handle them simply being missing.

2.) Remember that your animal is tuned into you telepathically and hears absolutely everything that you are thinking and is aware of what you are doing. In one case a woman planned on closing the garage door and trapping her cat and not allowing him to go out again. So guess who was careful to avoid returning home and triggering her traps. A certain cat had found freedom to be intoxicating and knowing what his person was planning should he return was enough to keep him away. To him having his outside time taken away entirely was simply not acceptable and he preferred to take his chances on his own.

3.) Animals contrary to popular belief, do not love us unconditionally. If conditions are unacceptable our animals tend to let us know through “misbehaving” or they may simply take off. They too have free will and have feelings just like you and I. Remember that since “your” animals can sense your true feelings and intent, be honest with them and do not treat them like children or babies. Animals are intelligent and deserve our respect.

4.) Contact the shelters in your area and even those just outside your area. You may also check with the local veterinarians and check with your neighbors to see if they saw anything.

5.) Post flyers, contact a pet finder service in your area and if you still need help contact someone such as myself.

Working the Case:
The first thing that I do when contacted regarding a missing animal case is request the “owners” name and the animals name and no further details.

Often times the first details to come in will be a physical description of the missing animal, and or unique traits and behaviors or personnel stories about the animal. As these details come in, it is important that you do not offer anything other than “yes” and “no” replies, no further details. Additional animals may come through during the reading who are also connected to you … and your animal, both living and passed may come through.

Once a connection is established and both of us feel that I am connecting with your missing animal, we will then ask questions regarding the nature of the disappearance. To me this in many cases is quite conversational, where I may ask a simple question and be given a simple reply such as “what were the workmen who scared you doing in the home?” and the dog replied to me “removing the carpeting and installing flooring” to which the “owner” said “yes, that is correct!” Sometimes the animal will “clam up” and I may have to apply what I call the “burning ears” technique which is where we will begin discussing the animals offending behaviors until the animal feels the need to stand up and speak for themselves so as to “set the record straight.”

Though I cannot assure you a happy conclusion to your missing case, I can guarantee you a greater sense of understanding and perhaps even closure, with or without your beloved animal companion returning to you. Please understand that you are paying for my time and not the results, as such and given the stressful nature of missing animal cases I operate on a somewhat sliding scale. Initial consultations are free, 5-10 minutes and should anything develop and you feel the information coming through was of some value to you and we go longer than a few minutes pay me what you can afford … based upon my regular rates. If after an initial consultation your animal is still missing, you may request a follow up session, though by and large if that is the case and it goes over 5-10 minute you will be expected to pay my regular rates.

Charles has a strong belief that we are all capable of what he does. His gifts are not unique to him as we all have the potential to connect with our 6th sense. Many of us connect with “spirit” and are not aware of it, or we are and we do not mention it to others. By guiding you to connect with your own abilities many have found that they can sense and communicate with both spirit and animals with practice after a few lessons with Charles as their guide and teacher. Look for workshops to be announced in the near future.
